About

An early period hard-edged color field abstraction in soft shades of green and pink, lavender and yellow. In works from this period, 1972 to 1976, bands of joyous color gently overlap or nudge against each other, like colored air. Towards the mid 1970s, Fox’s paintings became more simplified and more dramatic. Geometric color shapes float one on top of the other and paint texture becomes more insistently sensuous. As the 1970s progressed, Fox’s remaking of architectural forms, evoking the palazzi of Venice, are increasingly seductive through his intensely colored tactile surfaces. From the late 1970s to the early 80s, he reinvented abstraction by using tape to construct a fantastic world of rectangles, circles and indefinable shapes that dance across the multi-colored surface. Fox’s late abstractions mesh the inner world of sensations with subtle references to landscape and the body, in a sophisticated celebration of the power and pleasure of painting. "I am a painter, that's all I've done for thirty years. I've never believed in talent, only in interest, and in work. Art is a terrifically long-term thing. You find out about yourself first. The rest comes later, sometimes much later."- John Fox
